Yeah, I was thinking the head gasket might be leaking. Sometimes I'll kick it and it feels fine (well, like 100psi), and then the next few rotations fell like ~10-20 psi, and then it goes back to...

A 76 is a SOHC bike whereas an 81 is a DOHC. They're completely different. If you're looking to build a more traditional cafe bike and it must be a CB750, the 76 is absolutely the way to go IMO.
